I inverse telecined and decombed the MPEG2 of King of the Zombies, and it looks great - No visible interlacing, and no stutter in motion either. The frame rate is 25fps. Must have been PAL. I'll redo it to produce an avc/aac file and upload it if it still looks good.

There may be problems with doing this with other MPEG2s here though, because so many have missing frames, and that might mess up the inverse telecining.

The inverse telecined, decombed, and gray-scaled (to remove the greenish cast in the source) avc/aac MPEG4 looks and plays fine. The only aberrations I noticed corresponded to those in the source.

The frame rate given below for the MPEG4 is 25.313fps. It should be 24fps, if 100% of the MPEG2 was inverse telecined. 18,786 frames (15.55%) were removed through inverse telecining. 20% would be expected to be removed if 100% of the MPEG2 was inverse telecined, so the inverse telecining was 77.75% effective. Hence, 77.75% of the MPEG4 is at 24fps, and 22.25% is at 29.970fps, yielding a value of 25.328fps.

Here are the details for the MPEG2 and MPEG4 files:
